Fresh Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 09/05/2014 - If you want an easy, tasty summer salad that will make a splash at your next potluck, look no further than this fresh watermelon feta salad.

This simple recipe combines juicy watermelon, sweet onion, feta, cilantro and mint, with a dash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil to deliver a world of flavor.

I like mint and cilantro, but you can add parsley, watercress, or whatever you like.
